Happy 4th of July!

I got this in an email, and thought it was appropriate for today…

This 4th of July remember…
It is the soldier, not the president, who gives us democracy
It is the soldier, not the congress, who takes care of us.
It is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us freedom of press.
It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organization, who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag and whose coffin is draped by the flag, that allows the protestor to burn the flag.

— Father Dennis O’Brien, US Marine Corps Chaplain

Just remember while you’re shooting off and/or watching fireworks that freedom ISN’T free. Many Americans made the ultimate sacrifice to assure that our way of life endures.

God Bless America! Long may she wave!
